J7 London Bombings Dossier

 

Index 06 - Liverpool Street Underground Station

 
Official version of events

There was no explosion at this station. Confusion may have been caused by the sound of the Liverpool Street to Aldgate Circle Line blast echoing down the tunnels.

Query

Was there an explosion at the underground station in addition to the one(s) that almost certainly took place at ground level?

Exhibits (LSU1 - LSU10)

In addition to the press and agency reports there are seven eye witness reports from individuals who heard an explosion whilst in the underground station. However, only one of these, Michael Dunn (LSU3), specifically places the blast at the station, “an explosion went off in the next carriage”.

Related Information

Liverpool Street (LS1a - LS10)

Summary

It is probable that there was an explosion on a train at the underground station, however the evidence is not clear cut. It is possible that what witnesses experienced was the noise and dust from the Circle Line (and possibly other) explosions.

I was waiting at Liverpool Street station and got onto the Circle Line train at 8.50. Just as I sat down I heard a massive explosion and the lights went out. There was an eerie silence and then someone said 'what was that?' We were then calmly told to leave the carriage and make our way up the stairs. This was a most terrifying experience. I don't know if everyone on all the other carriages were okay. I feel very tired and drawn today and very sorry for those people who were injured or killed. Terrorizing innocent people going about their daily business is cowardly and an almost blatant acceptance of defeat.

I had just got on tube at Liverpool street and just before the doors shut, an explosion went off in the next carriage. Lights went out and people calmly left the tube. There was smoke coming from the carriage.

I was on the train at Liverpool Street station when there was a huge bang. The train shook slightly and the lights went out. Everyone was told to hurry out of the station, but no-one was told what was happening. I walked to another station to find that too had been closed. It was actually very frightening.

I was at the station when the explosion happened. I had just arrived on the east bound circle/district line station at Liverpool Street. As usual I walked down to the far left hand side of the platform. I had only been there for a minute or two when a train pulled up on the other side platform(westbound). The doors opened and as everyone was starting to get off, I saw a few lights starting to flicker overhead and then there was an explosion on the opposite side to me, just behind the train that had just pulled in. As you can imagine there were quite a few people panicking and quite a number of people started screaming and running towards the exit. I had a quick glance behind me as I was leaving to see some smoke coming from the area where the explosion had happened. The station was evacuated fairly quickly.

"I got off the train, walked off about five paces. There was a huge, I mean a huge, explosion which appeared to come from the back end of the train or the tunnel. Everybody just froze - what the hell's going on? Then everybody walked out of the station quite calmly ... There was no pushing. I went upstairs and got out. It was then you think how lucky you are."

Glenda Cann was halfway down an escalator towards Liverpool Street's Central Line when commuters were told to evacuate.

"As we got out, it was mayhem," she says. "The air was hazy. People could smell smoke and you could hear all the sirens."

LSU10

I was getting off the west bound central line at Liverpool street station at about 8.50. Halfway up the escalator, I felt the stairs shake a little and then there was a cloud of smoke that shot up from underneath the stairs. The alarm went off and people went crazy and just run out of the station.
